Shows that he hasn't forgotten the human side unlike Shanahan who fired 25 people without blinking an eye. With Nichelson and a new GM MacTavish will be on a very short leash, Lowe likewise.


If you don't do your job well or at all then you get fired.


This isn't the world of puppies and rainbows...

I have seen him play, not too Mich, but quite a bit.
And I could see him winning it and it wouldn't bother me, I just think ekblad jumping in and being a solid #1dman is more impressive.
To me, it is a lot more impressive, but that doesn't mean I don't think Johnny hockey doesnt deserve it...


For sure and I agree with you.  What Ekblad is doing at his age is so exceptional.

The league is as watered down as ever and there's still no room for these guys...


Clearly they don't have anywhere near the skill to play in the league.


Lots of guys bring those intangibles. Lots of guys work their asses of.  Lots of guys put their bodies on the line.


They're not that special.  They're clinging on to a dying niche.

If gaudreau wins, its turned into nothing more than points.
Just like the Norris.


I disagree.  Have you seen him play much?  He defines the word "dynamic".


He's only 150lbs and rarely ever gets hit. NEVER has his head down and always keeps you on the edge of your seat when he's on the ice.


He's a special player.


(Ekblad will win and deservedly so, but Gaudreau is not that far behind.)

Dirty or not?  I say no.


I also really like Tom Wilson.



I didn't like the fact that he made no attempt to play the puck. Otherwise, clean for the most part.


As a defenceman, Visnovsky has to be more aware of the forcheck.
